From 2016 all new build homes in England will need to be built to zero carbon standards. From 2019 the same applies to non-domestic buildings. Our sustainability team support all our designers to ensure we are not only up to speed with current regulations but also looking forward to designing for compliance in 2016 and beyond.
Designing for Zero Carbon
Our ethos is to design with a fabric first approach; we believe that reducing the energy use in a building is instrumental in delivering a sustainable, resilient and cost effective future for occupants. Our sustainability specialists can advise you on the use of highly efficient and low carbon systems to reduce the use of energy in your building and the impact on the environment. We can then advise how to mitigate the remaining carbon emissions on your development in order to reach zero carbon standard in the most economical and practical way.
Our sustainability and architecture teams have been designing and building zero carbon housing since 2008.
Embodied Carbon Analysis
As energy use in buildings is driven down, the embodied carbon of building materials, held in the construction of buildings is fast becoming a concern for those who want a truly sustainable building.
Ingleton Wood can help you to evaluate the carbon content of your project and can advise on low carbon methods that will help reduce the impact on the environment.
